My short tenure in the Marine Corps (20ish years) I have always been used to having our sleeves rolled up on our uniform. Once the Commandant ruled that everyone would always have their sleeves down, it did strike me a bit odd. The reason was advertised because it was to remind everyone that we had Marines still at war. Um, we all know, there are Marines at war; most of us have been there to see it firsthand.
If you haven’t seen this, then you need to(thus WHY you come to this site). It’s one example of an innocent heart, making a genuine gesture to a fellow serviceman and his family and who happens to missing his own dad who was killed in action. Time for a C-Gar!
When you’re steely eyed warriors go into harm’s way they are trained and given everything they need to succeed. Sometimes Marines find themselves in harm’s way and other times, more often than not they find themselves in Hells way.
Some people go through life bitching and complaining that life isn’t fair and they should have gotten this or that job and that everything is against them. Grab them by the scruff of the neck and show them the below. You feel a bit under the weather sweet heart? You think you day was rough? Try having it suck for the rest of your life. Then as it does suck, attack it with vigor like this warrior and laugh at its sorry attempt to bring you down. What a stud- Time for a C- Gar
I did not write the below article Im simply posting it. This version was sent to me from this site. I did this post because like many things on OMV, you should see it. If you "change" somthing like the military, you have to see the results of your changes, you cant hide them. Time for a C-Gar
There are those that have served and those that have not. In a crowed, many wouldn’t know this warrior had done what he has. What a joy it would be to sit down with him over a cigar and just listen. Time for a C-Gar!
Believe it or not, I’m a people person. Ha, I say that as Im communicating through a computer. However, I have a very good knack of reading people. It’s a gift I suppose but I can listen or talk to someone and I can tell when they are sincere, in pain, desperate or truly happy that it’s something you may have never experienced unless you have the same sort of people person reading Batman like skills.
There are some that boast about what they did in Iraq/Afg. There are those that don’t. There are those that give the military a bad name and then there are those not in the military that give the military a great name. Those are the ones that impress me. They are due attention for their efforts but they humbly show and remind others of those making a significant sacrifice. I was disappointed the US hockey team didn’t win gold because loosing sucks, however, Im glad guys like this are on our side and on our US team. Time for a C-Gar!
